They believe that if she has a baby boy, there is a huge possibility that she might pick the name Arthur, or Albert, or James, or Edward or Oliver.
However, if she does give birth to a baby girl, the odds are high that she will select Alice or Victoria or Elizabeth like her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
